Today’s post is all about some online gems that I love to scour when I’m after vintage and retro pieces or just to pass the time! I hope you like them. First up is We Are Cow – this is an amazing vintage & retro shop and online store. I’m lucky enough to have one on my doorstep in Nottingham but they also have stores in Manchester, Birmingham & Sheffield. Luke and I often pop in for a browse when we’re in town, it’s such a cool shop. I’ve picked three of my favourite pieces that they’ve had new in online recently to share with you guys. I love this blue denim midi skirt, this digital print boxy dress and this polka dot jumpsuit.
This is the little place that is going to be keeping up so busy for the next few weeks, perhaps months! It’s a lovely little terrace but it needs some serious TLC. We’re talking full on paint job and a lot of filler. So I’m hoping to do a few before, during and after photos for a little interiors series! Here’s a pic heavy post of the damage that needs repairing, ha! But we hope to have it up and running really soon and turn it into our beautiful first home.
Luke and I love a vintage and retro find so we popped along to Southwell Antique & Vintage fair on Sunday to see if we could find any bargains for our new house. We actually found a bargain 70s two-tier coffee table for £14 which was great but I’m keeping that for another post, surprises, surprises. Anyway, here’s a little photo diary of the day, we saw some lovely bits. We also went to a car boot sale the day after and it’s so funny to see the difference in what people take in terms of goods to sell but you can also find some similar bits so it’s useful to go along and grab a bargain or two.
On Wednesday night the lovely Leyla & I went to the Fashion Bloodhound Showcase at the Francis Hotel in Bath on behalf of The Image Consulting Company. I felt like I was walking into Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe or something, it was amazing. I tried on the most amazing Mawi cocktail ring, there’s pics below. Some of the pieces were just incredible. Seeing Halston Heritage and Alexander McQueen in real life, holding it in my hand, pretty incredible when you’re used to drooling over them in films, or online and you’re used to clutching a Topshop bag on the bus home. (Not that I take the bus, but you get the analogy)
So the amazing people from Teapigs got in contact via Twitter asking for bloggers that loved tea and I went for it, bombarded them with tweets until they sent me a really really really big bag of tea in so many different flavours and types.
This is the first of my Teapigs themed posts, I’ve got an iced tea recipe coming up next month which will be really exciting!
